    Since I've recently started trading with the tape/S&P futures
    I work with the realtime streaming quotes for the S&P, ES2Z.
    found at
    Until friday they were realtime and free; today I found out
    there was a 10min delay; can anyone tell me where to find
    free realtime S&P futures charts ? Thnx.

    Normally from the moment the exchange started to charge
    a fee, changed it to delayed status however
    due to a software glitch a few months it stayed real-time.
    It is since friday finished with real-time.....

    Any other options for Paulus to follow free E-quotes and

    charts ?

    Quotetracker doesn't support futures yet with IB, they told me they are working on it. I use sierracharts, its only $40 for 6 months and works well.

    The indices are still free and realtime at $indu, $spx $ndx, $compx. So if you are just watching the charts to see what the market is doing, they are still sufficient. By arbitrage the futures will track the indices pretty closely.
  8. the beta quotetracker seems to work with hong kong futures just fine.. probly will work with IBs s&p too..

    QuoteTracker work with futures now. If you have IB as your data feed you can get futures charts with QuoteTracker. Go to the help menu and click on the help with interactive brokers link to find out how to get the futures charts.
